Classic Scene : Animal Kingdom (2010)

"If your as smart as i think you are, you'd know to walk right on by me like we'd never seen each other before in our lives."


The film that should of made the Academy's selection for best picture of the year, not only easily but by a country mile.
Centering around a crime family in Melbourne Australia, this is nothing short of a modern day cinematic masterpiece. Writer Director David Michod doesnt judge his characters and makes them and their actions, seem so utterly real.


SETTING THE SCENE : The mother of the family - played with pure evil by the Oscar nominated Jacki Weaver - sees Detective Leckie (a superb Guy Pearce) in the supermarket at the film's finale.

INT. SUPERMARKET. DAY


Janine : Hi


Leckie looks up at Janine with surprise and disgust.


Janine : I just want you to know, i dont bear you any ill well Mr Leckie. I really dont. You were just doing your job... I hope you catch the people who did that terrible thing.


Leckie has heard enough and steps right up to Janine and looks her in the eye.


Leckie : If your as smart as i think you are, you'd know to walk right on by me like we'd never seen each other before in our lives. And you'd know to feel lucky.. You'll come unstuck, i got a feeling about it.. I think you do too. I reckon you carry that feeling around with you every second of the day.
Janine : But i dont Nathan.
